Baked Chicken Wings with Garlic Parmesan

One of my absolute favorite things that I can eat any time are chicken wings, even when I am not hungry! I pretty much love it with all kinds of sauce as long as it’s not super spicy. However, my number one flavor choice is this Baked Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings. So crispy, so flavorsome and a must for trying if you enjoy ton load of garlic.

Chicken Enchiladas with Green Chutney

Ever since we bought a gas grill, almost every weekend is turning into a grilled chicken and corn kind-a dinner. The warm days and light wind makes it quite perfect too. Next day, there is always left over grilled chicken to finish. It is not a bad thing because the options to make something amazing with that are limitless. Last week, I made Chicken Enchiladas with Green Chutney. I don’t know if the star of the dish was the filling or the sauce but it sure was a tasty combination that made for a delectable meal.

EASY Flan / Creme Caramel

Gently jiggling, sitting on a pool of dark caramel sauce! The contrast of this rich eggy custard with the faintly burnt taste of caramel is what makes crème caramel or flan so special. Glossy, shiny and so smooth that every bite just slides across your tongue. Called as Crème Caramel in Italy and flan in Spain, it is a simple baked custard with caramel topping.

Garam Masala Baked Potato Chips

Working from home can easily get you into this habit of munching something every now and then. Although I don’t normally get any salt/sugar attack, but we all go through unexplained days of craving. I reach for the bowl of fruits and then slowly switch to the pantry looking for some salty bite like chips! Earlier this week, I had one such day and randomly decided to try baking chips instead. I read a lot about baked potato chips, even drooled at several pictures. So, I went ahead and gave it a try. Garam Masala Baked Potato Chips, earthy, warm…

Chili And Lime Baked Salmon

The plan was to try new flavors, cook more often and share more often. Instead, I am looking for shortcut easy meals like this Chili and Lime Baked Salmon. Ever since we arrived here, we have been falling under the weather, pretty much back-to-back. Cold, cough and nasty virus, all leading to sleepless nights and a not-so-happy toddler! Avyan gave up food for almost a week and even ice cream didn’t excite him. However, he didn’t mind gulping those fruit flavored medicines. And as soon as he started to recover, I caught the bug. I just can’t stop coughing, stuffy…

Panko Crusted Salmon in Piccata Sauce with Nigella Garlic Flatbread

This was undoubtedly the most relaxing holiday we ever had. Every year, during this time, we either visit families back in India or explore a new place. We both love to travel, which is why every time an opportunity strikes, we pack our bags and hit the road. This time was different. After a stressful last few months at work, my husband needed this break and so we made no plans. We kept most of our days blank and let things happened randomly. There was no rush or chaos. We slept a lot, hanged out with friends and checked some…

Artichoke and Tomato Salad Tarts – DHSP Challenge #7

I am sure that walking for 15 miles or cooking for 100 people will not make me as exhausted as I feel right now! On the contrary, those might actually help me relax. Sometimes, mental exhaustion is worse than physical. It takes away all my energy and enthusiasm, leaving me lost and helpless.

Khandvi (A healthy finger food from India) – Guest Post for Tamara @ Bite My Cake

It's amazing how I like to challenge myself in the kitchen these days. It's like a fun workout for me. Sometime the exercises ends in a fabulous result which makes my day a whole lot brighter and sometime, there are those bad times when I cry...almost like a kid! The unsuccessful experiment creates a disaster and mess in the kitchen that makes me really mad! But thankfully it makes me more curious and stubborn. Call it attitude if you may, but it helps me to finally nail the dish!

Rosemary and Parmesan Savory Cookies

Most Indian kitchens would always have a spice rack with zillion colorful spices, multiple containers with different types of lentil, a huge container filled with wheat flour and definitely a white rice container. Typically! When it comes to utensils, you would always find a pressure cooker or two! Pressure Cooker might intimidate a lot of people but not an Indian wife. They have some kind of love towards them. My Mom has three of those.. different sizes and uses them almost every day. There is one in my kitchen too, hiding somewhere in some counter. I could never like those! Tough to…

This is my 100th post, yes 100.. wow! Can you believe it ??! :) I knew this day would come, but with all the blog-hopping, cooking, writing and clicking,  just didn't realize I had written 99 posts and it's time for the 100th! The journey so far has been amazing. Understanding about blogging, different social media, making friends and sharing recipes with them, it's an experience that I am enjoying every single day. A girl who used to order take-out now prefers to spend time in the kitchen and enjoy cooking. A girl who never used to touch the camera now…
